Paid subscriptions include the ability to access exclusive features and content such as subscriber-only lives and badges.

US Instagram users will soon be able to sign up with a limited number of influencers and creators for special content, features, and other exclusive items.

In an announcement on its blog, Instagram said that the company announced that it's starting an initial test of subscriptions this morning, with additional creators to be added in the next few weeks.

The fans will be charged monthly to get access to the subscriber-only content of the creators they follow, such as special lives and stories. Subscribers will also receive an orange badge on their username, which indicates that they are a creator. Prices will vary from $0.99 to $99.99 per month. Creators are able to select the price of their subscriptions.

Instagram also clarifies that they won't make a profit from the creators' subscription revenue "until at least 2023." Initially, Instagram adds only ten creators who were part of the first test, including basketball player Sedona Prince, Olympian Jordan Chiles, and astrologer Aliza Kelly.

In an Instagram post, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, which is also the owner of the amazing app Instagram, said: He said that I'm really excited about keeping building tools for creators that help them to make a living doing creative work and to put these tools in more creators' hands soon. " Facebook also offers its own version of the subscription plan for creators. And, they are working on more features to work on in the future.
